Here is my entry for the Ian’s SIG.

Will go with this military Land Rover and modified to turns a typical safari car, with tiger streams of course.... Will paint at free hand (no decals) and want to try to do a heavy dusty effect too, the South African roads are a hard terrain....

Have a little old base from my vengeance of Smaug, and will use here.

Just two figures on it, the first one will carry boxes on the Land, the other look fantastic as showing, like he is playing with an animal. (a tiger maybe :smiling3: ). With little parts of wood will do the front wall of an old hut....

Have a nice safari and many thanks!!! :smiling3:

Nice idea Polux, not so much "A Tiger meet" but "Meet a Tiger"

I'll look forward to seeing how this comes together.

Hi John!

Over the wood base I apply a coat of glue, then a modelling material (it 'give' form to the soil). Wait about 20 minuts and then apply another coat of glue with authentic earth/land. Now is dry, and will paint in a difference color, I prefer a more light brown color here.

Hope this help you!

Thanks
